If I was in another district that was not affected, I would want something comperable.
I hope it never gets funded. The only ones who would use it would be gas powered carts and mobile home and low income who would use it as a sole means of transportation. That, and if you have not been in the hospital ER in the last year, you would absolutely gag. I suggest Michael Burnett get off the C of C awards circuit and get involved in what is happening to that hospital he is in supposed to be in charge of. The neglect of that facility is staggering.
Odds are was on medicare. That should answer your question.
I will have to take another look at the agenda. A cart path from PTC to the hospital? Hope it includes some rapid charge stations along the way.
Read the agenda packet for the BOC tomorrow night. There is mention of county plans for path expansions w/in the the county. One item mentions a path connection between PTC, the hospital and Fayetteville. This is in planning stages only. Check with the mayor, she mumbled something about a possible countywide registration of golf carts a while ago.
Gwinnett County Commissioners have an upcoming vote to increase their own salaries to come into line with DeKalb, Cobb, and Fulton Counties. How long until Fayette follows?
Kindess not as free as it used to be. Nowadays with the mentality you describe being so prevelant in society, oftentimes preditors prey on and manipulate that sense of kindness to get inside your defense systems.
Good decision, council Now its time for another - actually two. First one is agree the $15 annual cart fee is a joke and that you will all vote for some new and higher amount that makes sense - in the sense that it provides real dollars for maintenance. Secondly, stop using the state law excuse.Rep. Ramsey is ready, willing and able to introduce legislation at the state level to exempt Peachtree City from the max of $15 allowed under the current law or to increase the amount state-wide if the funds are targeted specifically for path maintenance. Of course he will only do that if council has a supportive position on that. So, you need to have a vote - unanimous if possible.
So, agree to agree, then get a couple of staffers to get a report done. Please don't keep harping on the state law excuse. That's just silly and lazy. I read in the AJC that one state representative introduced a bill to scrap DeKalb's CEO position and replace it with something normal. If he can do that big of a change, Matt can sure accomplish what little old PTC needs. Just do it. You have to start the process and call him this week - don't wait for him to call you next week - that would be embarrassing.
